Bringing New Life to the Charles River Basin

In the days before Memorial Drive and the Longfellow Bridge, the sides of the Charles River were home to wetlands and a lush green riverbank. Today, the south side of the river supports vibrant parks, while the north side is hard edged along the river frontage.  

On the evening of August 22, join Galen Fulford, Managing Director at Biomatrix to discuss ideas and opportunities that can help bring life and ecological vitality back to the Charles.

Currently on display as part of NatureStructure exhibition, Galen will present  his innovative design Floating Ecosystems and explore  opportunities for local implementation. He will be joined by Laura Jasinski, Executive Director of the Charles River Conservancy, who will share details on their Swim Park Project, an ongoing initiative to bring urban swimming back to the Charles. The Charles River Watershed Association will also speak about their efforts to protect and enhance the river. The discussion will be moderated by Scott Burnham, curator of NatureStructure exhibition.
